During the two week closure in February for maintenance on the pool and new tiling, we remained very active with two nude bowling tournaments. Since the resumption of activity at the pool, attendance levels are up, notably with a significant increase in the number of women.
In 2016, we broke the world record for attendance at a naked bowling tournament and this year we broke our own record, with 137 naturists at our big event on February 7th.
We pulled our (bowling) balls out again on February 16th; ten members of the ANP were among the 20 participants at a nude bowling evening organised by the Île de France chapter of the French Federation of Naturism in the town of Ozoir la Ferrière.
We have already exceeded the number I had targeted for March 5th’s nude theatre event but there are still some places remaining. You have until Friday March 3rd to hand in your registration forms and cheques, with a choice between the session at 3pm or 6pm. Don’t forget that the restaurant will also be a nude zone for the event.
A naked disco night is organised for Saturday March 18th in Villepinte.
On the weekend of March 25th, a group of members are heading to Belgium for an evening at Aquaparc in Ghent on the Saturday and a day at Thermes R spa on the Sunday.
On April 1st, we’re off to Orleans once again for the Balnéades spa evening, where we will be warmly welcomed by the Association Joie et Santé.
For more information on these outings, please take a look at the events page on our website. If you would like to participate, please contact us by email or directly at the welcome desk of the pool.
Naked water polo: We’re organising a nude water polo tournament at Roger Le Gall Swimming Pool from 9pm on Monday March 6th. There is no extra fee to pay to join in, so come along and enjoy this one-off evening. No level or knowledge of the game is required; we’re just there to have a good time! Prizes will be handed out to all competitors.
Pot luck gathering: On Friday March 17th, Asia is coming to the pool. Come along with your sweet or savoury Asian dishes - spring rolls, sushi, samosas, gyoza, exotic fruit or just your favourite Asian dish.
ANP in a book: Our association has featured in “100 Paris en Un”, the new release by Dominique Lesbros, author of numerous books about Paris. This Parigramme publication is available in bookshops for €12.90.
